ULF (Ultra Large Format)!

Ultra Large Format (ULF)...
definition: cameras which use film sizes larger than 8x10".

I have joined
the "big boys" club. My custom Arca Swiss/Canham 11x14" back just came in last week. This will allow me to simply switch backs on my Arca 8x10" camera and jump up to the next size. The camera itself is very light, not much more than the 8x10" back itself.

I plan on making 11x14" contact prints from the negatives I make with the camera. No need to enlarge these! I think the 11x14" size is optimum for contact prints.

I can't wait to start using this camera! I will post action shots and print scans once I have some to share.
